Publisher's Summary

In Paul Doiron’s riveting follow-up to his Edgar Award-nominated novel, The Poacher's Son, Maine game warden Mike Bowditch’s quest to find a missing woman leads him through a forest of lies in search of a killer who may have gotten away with murder once before.

While on patrol one foggy March evening, Bowditch receives a call for help. A woman has reportedly struck a deer on a lonely coast road. When the game warden arrives on the scene, he finds blood in the road—but both the driver and the deer have vanished. And the state trooper assigned to the accident appears strangely unconcerned. The details of the disappearance seem eerily familiar. Seven years earlier, a jury convicted lobsterman Erland Jefferts of the rape and murder of a wealthy college student and sentenced him to life in prison. For all but his most fanatical defenders, justice was served. But when the missing woman is found brutalized in a manner that suggests Jefferts may have been framed, Bowditch receives an ominous warning from state prosecutors to stop asking questions.

For Bowditch, whose own life was recently shattered by a horrific act of violence, doing nothing is not an option. His clandestine investigation reopens old wounds between Maine locals and rich summer residents and puts both his own life and that of the woman he loves in jeopardy. As he closes in on his quarry, he suddenly discovers how dangerous his opponents are, and how far they will go to prevent him from bringing a killer to justice.

    "Maine Game Warden solves murder!!"

    Maine Game Warden, Mike Bowditch is just recovering from dealing with his notorious father in THE POACHER'S SON. His girlfriend has decided to give him a second chance to spend more time at home, and to be "safe" in his job. Now negatively labeled as "the poacher's son", he is trying to live down this reputation, but this is difficult as he is once again fighting the current within his area.

    Mike was called to the scene of an accident between a driver and a deer, but for some strange reason the girl has left the scene. But did she really leave on her own, as she has been found brutally murdered in one of the Maine coast's "summer cabins"---huge summer homes for the vacationing rich. Her married lover is found in a four wheeler with his throat slit. The authorities want to call this a murder/suicide, but Mike finds the girl's murder eerily like another murder that happened a number of years ago. But since that murder was "solved" , with the perpetrated behind bars, things just don't add up, and Mike just can't leave well enough alone.

    Mike is caught between those calling the convicted man innocent, and those who just want to close both cases, and they are not "playing nice". Mike's girlfriend just wants him to consider his safety while investigating a crime that is NOT within the Game Warden's job description.

    This book is definitely a thriller, but the play on atmosphere and the definite "Maine dialogue", adds a whole new dimension to the enjoyment of this book. Once again, Paul Doiron has created a book of action so definitely within Maine, that the reader is transported to the seaside with the characters---multiplying the suspense for the reader twofold. Definitely this series will continue to be on my reading list, going right on to the nest book--BAD LITTLE FALLS.

    "If you can't do an accent well, just DON'T"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm from Maine, and I have loved these first two Doiron books! And I adore being able to listen while I'm doing other things, or don't have time to read. But...

    PLEASE, if you don't know how to pronounce Maine place names, ask. And for God's sake, if you can't do a Maine accent, just don't! The attempt by this narrator to produce a plausible accent was just painful! It was something like a cross between South Boston, Rhode Island and New York.

    Frankly, it ruined the book for me. I'm sorry to say, I think I'm going to have *read* the rest of the Mike Bowditch books because I just can't take it.

    "The reader destroys this book"

    Loved first book in this series but can't stand to listen to this reader and his phony Maine accents. I have lived in the area for over 30 years and his accents are very annoying but worse is his reading voice, almost in possible to follow the story. Very sad, I was looking forward to this book. I guess I have learned to listen to the sample first before buying.
